By Associated Press 1 WASHINGTON, July fconate Ray> ment had decided not to proceed with i the standing order relating to the postponement of the consideration of a bill from one ncssion to another. It had also decided to drop the Irish land purchase bill and the tithes bill, hut to again introduce them at the next session, which would open in November. Smith said he trusted that, before the House proceeded further, it would pass the bill providing for the cession of Heligoland to Germany, the local taxation bill (providing for housing the working and the census bill. Sir William Vernon Harcourt said he hoped the Government would con- sult the House about holding a meet- ing of Parliament in November. Glad- stone expressed a similar wish. Smith stated that-the Government was satis- fied as to the convenience of tho ses- sion opening in November. Hoy Hilled. Special to the ST. HELENA July a 13-year-old lad visiting the resumed the consideration of the con- ference report on the silver bill and was addressed by Morgan in opposi- tion to the report. He expressed him- self that to-day was to be a crisis in tho question of currency in the United States, as much so in regard to the de- monetization of silver and the confin- ing of coin to a single gold standard, as was the act of 1873. He did not know but the effect of the vote to be taken it should result in the adop- tion of the conference be really more fatal to the prospect of sil- ver coinage in the future than the act of 1873. The legislation of 1873 had been, he said, an act of cold-bl xxled assassination of the silver dollar. It of worK- had been presided over by the same Senator whose "fine Italian hand" 'was to be seen in thd conference a bill which was a total departure from the action of both houses aud was es- sentially as new as if it had been a novel written by the Senator from Ohio within the last five Morgan went on to speak of legisla- tion on all important matters being now entirely controlled by conference committees and committees of arbi- tration, proceedings were secret, so that if such committee were bribed to the extent of a hundred million dol- lars, no Senator would be permitted to find it out. This statement was challenged and ca'ised some side talk between Mor- gan, Allison and Sherman. Morgan resumed his argument and said the conference bill had called the attention of the friends of free coinage, particularly the Senator from Colorado to the fact that the same "flue Italian hand" which framed the act of 1873, operated on tho conference bill to destroy utterly any hope of tho of silver, so long as it remained unrepealed. Ho predicted that when the others of the conference came to realize hat they had done they would feel like kicking thomseherf a ten-acre field. The bill would the country; it would make gold the only thing with which to pay debts or buy property. The craft of the Sen- ator from Ohio could not after twelve months' consideration have fixed up a bill that would more thoroughly de- stroy silver forever as money.

So far perfection has not been reached with any of the smokeless powders. iThoy do not keep well and have a tendency to absorb moisture, tno result being a change in the rate of burning and consequent pressure in the gun. In the course of experiment- ing, however, marvelous results are being obtained. In France a powder for small arms has been discovered which behaves in exactly the reverse manner from ordinary rifle powder, the pressure being greater at the muz nlo of the rifle than at the and velocities of over feat pur second have been obtained with the bullets. Thn fw of a Kotler anrt Knsrlne. The Mining and Scientific Press says: The life of a steam plant has lately come up for discussion. For de- preciation of machinery 10 per cent, is usually allowed by but it is a question if the steam plant is so whott lived. Twelve years is usually as the life of an ordinary boiler, yet there are many boilers now in use that have been run foi over 20 yenro. The whole question depends, then, upon conditions of use and care, as much, if not more, than the con- struction, providing, of course, this is not radically defective. [On account of having missed the early action of the House in to-day's report, we are unable to give the GA- readers the final action of that body on the silver conference bill. The Chicago office sent some late House proceedings without saying what bill they were Held for Harder. By Associated Press.} ATLANTA July words that weep and tears Mrs. Charles Gould, who is confined in jail at Murphy, N. the charge of murdering her husband, declares the killing was unintentional; that she was forced to it to protect herself from a man who, when sober, was a loving, careful, thoughtful husband, but who under the influence of liquor was a disgraceful, inhuman brute, whose chief pleasure lay iu torturing her with threats of violence. It was not the husband this quiet, golden-haired little woman killed, it was the beast. The story in brief is that Gould and his wife came to Murphy from Eng- land, where they Hpeut money with princely liberality. The other day Gould returned fromahuntanddrur.k, began to abuse bis wife and struck her j with a riding-whip. In the struggle which ensued she drew a dagger from her belt and stubbed him blindly, furiously till dead. She now, heart- broken, is in jail, awaiting trial. Tree-Felling by Some interesting experiments were made the ether day in the vicinity of Copenhagen with tree-felling for mil- itary purposes by dynamite. The ob- ject was to ascertain the saving in time and labor effected by this method and the results were exceedingly satis- factory, far more BO than is understood to have been the case elsewhere. Trees of as much as three feet in diameter were brought down in some 20 to 25 minutes, whereas the time occupied by ordinary felling would have been ten times as much. HotelM for the Wealthy.

Archbishop Creland of the Catholic Church, who read a paper before the Convention to-day, showed himself to be far in advance of the members of his Church in Milwaukee. Referring to the com- pulsory education laws of Wisconsin and Illinois, he said they were objec- tionable only ip of their indi- vidual clauses, and he unreservedly favored State laws making instruction and if a father neglects to educate his child the State should punish him. He recognized the right of the parent to educate his child in his own way, provided the education received is sufficient for the ulterior duties of the child towards himself and society. He held that, while the State need not teach religion, for the sake of its people, and for its own sake, it should permit action by the Church.
